Driven by a desire to express contemporary issues of climate change and environmentalism Melbourne artist Felicity Gordon has a fluid approach to her art practice. Felicity’s current project considers our changing relationship with nature as we contemplate sustainability. Of particular interest is how some of us are growing or producing our own food. Felicity’s practice includes drawing, painting, sculpture, community art projects and site-specific installation.
Felicity is a constant drawer and in 2016 participated in a Drawing Marathon at the New York Studio School in America.
Felicity has worked on community arts projects for schools, Local Government and art institutions such as Edendale Farm, Manningham and Banyule Councils, Eltham High School, Eltham Preschool, Eltham Farmers’ Market and Local Living and Learning Centers.
Felicity is currently a Masters of Visual Art candidate at Federation University and has completed a Post-graduate Diploma in Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts, Post-graduate Diploma of Vocational Education at Melbourne University and a BA Honours in Fine Art Painting at R.M.I.T.
Felicity’s work is held in The Melbourne Arts Centre, VCA, private and public collections.
